In the long run, letting me stream a show over & over & over & over & over & over & over & over & over & over & over & over & over is going to ultimately cost LP more than if they just gave us the .MP3s, so you're loss, really, I guess...

So glad $10 of my ticket price now goes toward access to the show on the worst streaming service/app imaginable. You shouldn't be guilting us into supporting LP because they support MB, you should be directing disgruntled people to donating to MBF directly as opposed decrying loosing your kick-back from LP.

The streaming/app sucks, the Live Stream prices are getting outrageous, and now they pull this seedy backroom ticket code nonsense. LivePhish does not deserve our continued support, there are plenty of other ways to support MBF without them.
What other band have you seen lately that even gives you this option? We should be thankful that they have allowed download codes for this long, and that you can still get the show via the app, and that they even offer an app.

I don't know which app you've been using but it's been pretty reasonable for me in the past. Not to mention you must be from a different era, more traffic on any site / streaming service brings in more revenue than a one time download. Maybe you should support Dead & Company or something that just hoses you even more on ticket prices and fails to even give you a one time listen on an app, or an official download.

Side note: There are plenty of FREE audience recordings if you're interested. Ever hear of Phish OD, bt.etree.org, or the rest of the internet?

Question: How's your entitlement status today? (Seems pretty high) Personally I consider myself lucky to be able to see a band I love in some of the best venues around, even if that means paying a little $$ and not getting something that we've been gifted in the past. It seems like if it were up to the band they'd do it all for much less, but you know, those people who take care of all the spun out Wooks probably deserve some pay, not to mention all the other people who contribute to the production. I find it funny that most of us won't bat an eye at paying $4+ for a coffee but complain about stuff like this.

Don't be mad at the band, take it out on the industry. 10$ of your ticket price goes to people in offices that you've never even heard of, and another $10 goes to their bosses, oh yeah, and another $10 goes to some asshole's big bonus for having a prestigious title. Don't be mad at Phish for still giving you a service that most bands don't even offer.

Enjoy everything while it lasts and stop complaining!
